Re: Problem on using NVidia for 1AGP+1PCI cards to emulate 2 terminals.
I have the same problem here, using ruby
Same messages in syslog
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x21:0xffffffff:686)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
I also notice i get this message when starting XFree86, which i copied by hand
NVIDIA: Could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/Output Error)
a cat /dev/nvidia1 which is the agp card produces
cat: /dev/nvidia1: Invalid argument
but a cat /dev/nvidia0 which is the pci card produces
cat: /dev/nvidia0: Input/Output Error
or similar...i copied this by hand again.
i notice that the bug report says this for the pci card
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??.??
which indicates the i/o error is the problem i am led to believe.
i have tried swapping pci slots to eliminate an irq sharing issue.
i have verified the pci card works fine in another pc as the sole graphics card.
if i replace the pci nvidia card with an old virge card, the second xserver starts fine.
any ideas ?
